#41 Zubat


Zubat is combination of a few bat projects that I have patterns for.  I took the body from one and the wings from another.  Zubat is smaller than I originally planned for it to be.  The chenille stem was put into the tails to add stability to them.  Once I finished Zubat, I wished that I had used some floral wire in the wings.
